Yesterday my cousin saw there were some cats on the street. They appear to be undernourished or thin. This street cat looks much different from a domestic cat, whose body is smooth and fat because it is cared for by his master. Friends, are there still many abandoned and hungry cats in your place? Photo is mine

Yes, maybe because these cats roam the streets, so they don't eat enough. If they roam around residential residents, surely the residents will give these cats food. If the road is a passing vehicle.

Oh sweet Jesus that cat looks awful. It's undernourished alright. Wouldn't surprise me if it's internal organs will stop working soon

Thank you friend. These cats are skinny, because they live on the streets, and away from the houses of the surrounding residents. I hope that pedestrians who pass through the street adopt the cat.

@maratai I wouldn't. It will most likely have issues Both medical and psychological

They definitely look thin and undernourished. Here in our country cats are still not very popular pets and most of them are street cats. Though they are not well groomed like pet ones, they don't look undernourished. Many people feed these cats though they don't pet them.

Yes, maybe because the cat you mentioned lives near a resident's house there. But the cats in the picture I'm posting happen to live near the highway, which is far from people's homes, so they often lack food. Although sometimes there are also people who happen to pass there to give them food.

Yes that's right friend. They live on the streets, near the highway, far from the houses of the residents there, so they are short of food.

Yes, in my place there are also many stray cats on the streets. Because this cat breeds fast.

A few years ago, when I worked in our capital Beijing, a colleague of mine said that there were some stray cats near their home. She would feed cat food to these stray cats downstairs every night. When she was not at home, she would also ask her mother to help her feed those stray cats. Not only would she feed them, but the neighbors would also join in feeding these stray cats regularly

Yes, maybe the cat you mentioned lives or roams around people's homes. So that the cat does not starve, because the residents there take turns feeding them. But the cat that I posted is roaming or living on the streets, where there are no people's homes. There were only vehicles that passed by fast. So they are skinny. Because they eat if there are people who pass by on the street. If they live near a residential area, surely this cat will be fed too. Like the cat that is in your place.

@zhangxueying, that was a good act to save lives. They are helpless cats and need constant care.

No, I have not seen such a thin stray cat. Maybe this cat is not getting food to eat.

Yes that's right friend. This cat roams the streets, and away from the homes of residents who live around the highway. so they rarely get to eat. It is also possible that they were fed by residents who happened to pass by on the road, but because there were so many cats, they fought for food, and lacked food.

@maratai yes that's the reason why they don't get enough food. There are fewer or no residents on the highway.

@sjvg1976 Yes, that's right, friend. If stray cats live near people's homes, they will have enough to eat. Because it is always fed by the people who live there.

Hahaha.. you're so innocent friend. The way you talk about your skinny as well as cat-like childhood is so cute. Was your family life very difficult when you were a child? so you are thin due to lack of food or nutrition?

In my place there are a lot of cats roaming around. Because these cats love to mate, then get pregnant and have children. So they reproduce quickly.

@maratai I’ve seen tons of stray cats in my travels. People put out food and water for them. Too bad they couldn’t have them spayed.

@DianneN Hahaha...sometimes stray cats are scary. Because they are not used to being touched by people, when they are touched by people, the stray cat can suddenly become angry and scratch those who approach and touch it. That's why people don't bathe these stray cats. Because they are very different from domestic cats, whose lives are very well cared for.

No. Stray cats can carry diseases and tear property up so when one is found here the pound picks them up.

Yes, they carry disease because their body or fur is dirty and not well cared for. So they like to be vicious too because of hunger.

Wow, it means that in your place, the average cat all lives in the owner's house and is very well cared for for sure. Both their bodies as well as their food, are guaranteed by the master who nurtures them. that's very nice friend.
